"I obtained a lot of wisdom and inspiration as a regular attendee at the Nintex Leadership Breakfast Series.

As a LMBA student and a leadership coach, it's important for me to see the point of view of the leadership and learn how they developed their leadership skills along with their professinal growth.

One of the speakers agreed to be my mentor. It is a valuable experience to be mentored by a leader who sees the world differnetly than I do."
